The ICA Commision on Map Design has obtained, analyzed, and shared 365 different maps. In the individual blog posts, Ken Field goes into detail to discuss the design and purpose of the maps. Only a handful of them are geographic maps, while many also serve as infographics to help us understand the world better. Some of them just look really good. It was their goal to have a collection of good maps with quality design principles available for inspiration. Going through them all would be very addicting, since these maps will also lead you to more information about mapping techniques and historical context. Perhaps we could even attempt to recreate some of these on our own!
The maps can be found on Pinterest here as well.
